New This Week: June 8, 2005

Based on the NCRL list for this week's comics shipping from Diamond, here are a few things to look for at the local comic shop tomorrow:

The Pick of the Week is Eric Shanower's Age of Bronze, vol. 2: Sacrifice, the second collection of his retelling of the Trojan War, is now available in paperback. (I watched Troy on DVD this past weekend, and trust me when I say that Age of Bronze is much better.)

In other comics:

Amaze Ink has a new issue of Patty Cake and Friends (vol. 2 #14)

Antarctic has Fred Perry's new OGN, Peebomanga.

Archie has a new issue of Tania del Rio's Sabrina (#67).

DC has new issues of Action Comics (#828), Fables (#38), Gotham Central (#32), Majestic (#6), Rann/Thanagar War (#2), and Tom Strong (#33).

El Capitan has a new issue of David Lapham's Stray Bullets (#38).

Evil Twin has the Action Philosophers All Sex Special.

Fantagraphics debuts their new anthology, Bete Noir.

HK Comics has a 'revised and expanded' edition of the fourth volume of Andy Seto's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon adaptation.

IDW has a collection of Puffed.

Image releases a new issue of Age of Bronze (#20) as well; debuts Strange Girl and Ploog & DeMatteis' Stardust Kid; and the Negative Burn Winter 2005 finally shows up, now that it's June and 90 degrees ouside.

Marvel has the first issue of Gravity; the final issues of Mary Jane: Homecoming (#4) and District X (#14); new issues of New Thunderbolts (#9), The Pulse (#9), The Punisher (#22), Ultimate Spider-Man (#78), and Ultimate FF (#19); a third Ultimate Fantastic Four collection, N-Zone; and those of you who were waiting patiently for the trade of Neil Gaiman's Marvel 1602 can finally read it.

Pantheon has Dan Clowes' new OGN, Ice Haven (which I predict will sell much better in bookstores than in comic shops).

Shooting Star has the debut of Nick Landmine vs. The World Crime League (with no BB in sight!)

Once again there's plenty of stuff to but and read; when will the madness end?!

Don't forget AdHouse Book's excellent Skyscrapers of the Midwest #2! It'll be available in many east coast stores tomorrow, and everywhere else the following week. I did a preview and interview with Joshua W. Cotter for it here.
